Reviews - What do customers think about Paddle-to-the-Sea (Sandpiper Books)?

A great book for young and old  Sep 26, 2007
Wonderful illustrations and a book that will not bore an adult. Great learning tool for young readers.

This book was recommended to me on a recent sailing trip thru the Great Lakes. I bought it for my hometown library as it was a wonderful geography lesson. Truely a dateless book and a lovely present for a child or library.
Paddle to the Sea  Apr 1, 2007
I LOVE all of Holling Clancy Holling's books, but I have to admit that Paddle to the Sea is my favorite. The story of a little boy who carved a little man in a wooden canoe, and the adventures encounterd by the little man just captured my imagination. I never knew the Great Lakes until after feeling as though I had been there with Paddle to the Sea. H.C. Holling books are works of art packed with wonderful facts from science and geography. Any teacher's dream curriculum because you'll have the children enrapt attention! My sons love them as much as I do, and even now, they remember reading them as great memories.
A compelling tale that's truly educational  Jan 10, 2007
I read Paddle-to-the-Sea as a child (I was born in 1942), and its story, illustrations and maps have left lasting impresssions on me. It blends social studies, geography, 20th Century American history and wonderful artwork into a gentle, loving tale. It ought to be required reading for all American youths.
What a book!  Nov 11, 2006
I couldn't say enough good things about this book and the series.
Wonderful  Nov 10, 2006
I have used this book as a child, with my children, as a teacher, and now with my grandchildren.
The book offers many educational experiences, entwined within a fine story.
